    Default February 2018 TASL Meeting - DATE SELECTION

    Here's a poll to see which Saturday would get the most attendance. PLEASE post all dates that you can attend. I will document the final poll results on Friday January 5th around 2pm, so I can drive to the rental place to get our room reserved. In case of a tie, I will pick the soonest date. In case that date is taken for our rental hall, I will move to the second choice, etc. Also feel free to post any comments about this or other meetings in 2018.

    Regarding the rental, if their rates stayed the same as last year, then I think we have enough in the bank to pay for the first meeting. I’ll send a separate email in a week or so to discuss our “rental hall dues” for 2018. There are more of us now, so with the carry over funds from last year, we may only need about $10 a family this year (to pay for the second date).

    In addition to taking the poll, feel free to discuss the 2018 meetings in general (here). We paid for 3 full Saturdays per year for several years. But there was always one meeting where only 6 or 8 members participated. I still think two well attended meetings are a lot more fun than 3 with less participants. But what do all of you think ?

    Another thought .. we have used the middle of August for the second meeting. Is there another month that might get better attendance ? Or a better time in August ? It seems that when we go for early August, we lose people over kids starting school. Late August seems to conflict with vacations. I think we tried September once, and it was a bust. I think we lost people because we all get too busy with the last warm weekends by then. WHAT DO YOU THINK ?

    I like this idea too. For short training sessions, it will open up a lot for us. It also would let us invite others from various other Lighting sites, when we have topics (and experts) talking about things of great interest.

    Looks like others share your preference too. The 1st weekend is in the lead. I am available for all three but I like the first weekend best.

    A zoom meeting would be fine with me. I am fine with 2 or 3 meetings. Is there any specific goals that anyone has that would benefit from a special meeting on a topic? For example, we did one last year on moving from LOR to Xlights.
